With the new year we thought we would start publishing a blog post on the 30th of every month of a calender highlighting some of the events in the upcoming month in the Domain and Internet world.
January is sure jammed packed with shows and auctions.
The largest convention in the US kicks the year off as the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) rolls into Las Vegas.
Always full of the latest gadgets and new technology, it’s a must follow event. The stuff that you will be talking about in 2011 will be debuted at the show.
The show will be held January 6th-9th.
The AVN adult show is held concurrently with the CES show in Las Vegas starting January 6th and continuing to January 9th.
The AVN Awards Show, will be held at the Palms Resort and Casino, on Saturday, January 8, 2011.
The Affiliate Summit West, “the premier affiliate marketing conference”, will be held also in Las Vegas January 9-11 at the Wynn Hotel. It is one of the largest such shows that will be held all year.
Literally every major player in the Internet Space will be represented at the show.
The Internext Show which is for adult webmasters will be holding its largest show of the year, also in Las Vegas from January 9-11.
Promising more than 1,500 attendees the show is a must for adult website operators.
On January 12th Hunting Moon will be holding an adult auction as part of the AVN/Internet shows of over 500 top adult domains.
The auction will be held on Snapames.com.
The two highest priced domains in the auction are FreeSex.com with a $3.5 million reserve and Tits.com with a $2M reserve.
SnapNames.com will be holding its monthly showcase auction featuring “Generic & Keyword” Domains will end on January 18th at 3:15PM.
The 8th annual Internet Dating Conference (iDate) will be held in Miami January 19-21st.
According to the show organizers:
“At the most recent iDate Miami event, well over 500 senior executives from the Dating and Social Networking industry attended.”
Snapnames will be holding an auction in conjunction with the iDate show which will start end on January 20 at 3:15pm EST.
The Social Networking Conference will be held January 19-21st also in Miami. While they hold three shows a year, the Miami show will be the biggest.
The show is described as covering the “business aspects of the enterprise social networking markets and strategic communication in the USA, the E.U. and the Asia. Topics covered are: new media, new technologies, strategic communications, mobile, venture capital, enterprise social networking and internet personals, software, global business strategies, partnerships, legal issues and payments.”
January 21st also marks the last day you can apply to bid in the i.Co auction which will be held in February.
Unlike most auction, you will have to pre-qualify to bid in the auction where the the starting bid is $100,000. Of course with Overstock’s acquisition of O.co we expect this auction will hit at least the $350K Overstock paid for O.co and with it being an “i” world right now, I’m thinking $500K or more.
GreatDomains.com is holding a premium auction which will end on January 27th.
Of course technically in February DomainFest will kick off on the 1st in Santa Monica. More details on that one next, in our next Domain Calendar which will be out January 30th
I’m sure we will always miss a few things but that’s what I have all of you for .
